There are many useful apps for teachers on the iPad, especially concerning assistive technology. Apple is very dedicated to making their products accessible to everyone, so much so that they have a webpage dedicated to showcasing their assistive technology features on iPhones, iPads, and computers.
There are iPad apps for dysgraphia, dyslexia, vision, hearing, and more. The National Center for Learning Disabilities has a list of apps they recommend for assistive technology for the iPad, including Evernote, Dragon Dictation, and more. If you do not have an iPad of your own to experiment with these apps, you can check out iPads from HPU Libraries or HPU IT.
Be sure to check out these apps and see how they can apply to you promoting assistive technology in your classroom.
